So today I found these two little guys under the peahen. One of the hatched eggs is clearly a peafowl egg. So I am assuming they are peachicks. Unfortunately where the hen nested is the chicken pen so not very sanitary or private. The hen was confused and started pecking at her own chick. For these reasons we took the chicks away from the hen and put them in the feed shed where they will have heat, clean bedding, water and food.
I feel bad but these chicks are so precious to us, especially after their father died, that we want to maximize their chances of survival. So what do you think? Are these peachicks or not?
PS We had a pheasant chick hatch two days ago in our incubator, and he was in this pen. But when we placed the peachicks in there, he freaked out and managed to escape out of a teeny tiny hole in the wall we had not noticed. So he has gone missing, but the hole is fixed.
